Arians says Justin Evans will return soon


Saturday in press conferences, Bruce Arians announced that there is no timetable on the injury to rookie Mike Edwards, but that Justin Evans is close to returning. In the midst of a now completely depleted safety group, Arians expressed his concern for depth at the position and that there would like to be a move in place soon.

This safety group for Tampa Bay right now is scary thin. The Buccaneers currently have five injured safeties in Mike Edwards, Jamel Dean, Justin Evans, Kentrell Brice, and D’cota Dixon. Four of those five players are expected to play often this year, so this is much bigger than it seems. Having Evans back from injury would be a major boost to this secondary right now. Arians would also have this to say regarding Evans rehabilitation process right now:

He seems to be fairly close to 100%. But will Evans be football ready?
